From all these posts, it is very clear that there would be a good deal of interest in an  idea we had a few years ago - a pudding club. We never took it any further, but I suspect it could be of equal interest to many French people too, as they like sweet food, butmost of their desserts are cold. Hot steamed puds and custard (not thin cold creme anglaise) would go down a treat, especially in the winter months.

What about rosey red rhubarb, just pulled- with custard. My lovely French neighbour asked me how I made the  custard. Demonstration in the kitchen. So next time we are invited to dinner, we may be served with rhubard and custard.

Ooh, now you're talking - spotted dick (with custard), perhaps treacle pudding, steamed jam sponge - takes me back to my childhood!

Wow steam pud recipe. Not being able to buy flour from the UK always hesitant doing a steamed pud with French flour. Maybe your recipe could help and I then will have that taste again, fantastic steam pud era in the 50's when Nan and Mum did them. ! My man is mad on spotted dick, that is a good old fashioned recipe too. Bring it on folks. Recipes!!!! Central Brittany Journal is amazing. In the Feb 2007 addition a recipe you would die for*; Once I have tried it then I will publish it on Anglo. First I have to visit the Co-op in Ploermel and then I will cook it. Not only has it got the ingredients for people who suffer from Allergies, ibs, bloating, wind, this product is gluton free. You could live on it. Watch this space

Love my pressure cooker wouldn't  be without one. I even have a microwave  one from Lakeland  which is great for the 2 of us and so quick. Does small steamed  puddings in 2 mins and a small gammon joint in 25. So best of both worlds my big one for big portions  and one for small portions.

with a pressure cooker and the menues, you can cook for six people on a one ring gas, slowly hissing. It combines all the vitamins, economically an advantage. If you have leftovers, freeze and bingo, a ready meal for your busy days. I have used a pressure cooker since 1968. They are worth there weight in gold. Go for it. Save your points. Sometimes the shops have double and threble points on offer. Itsoon mounts up.
